Great conceit...picking up on a detective series from the 1960s with a rabbi as the investigator, but this time having a young, queer, rabbi from Providence as the hero. Definitely had the familiar characteristics of the genre...sidekicks, red herrings, late night threats, etc. Appreciated the setting of Providence and the internal politics of congregational leadership. Would absolutely read another volume in this series.
